Inspirational Card Sketches 45


I've made this following the sketch at Inspirational Card Sketches. It's a completely different style of card for me, but a friend asked me for a card for a lady in her 60's who likes flowers, so it couldn't be my usual cutesy type of thing! I'm not keen on it, and I'm considering making a different one to give her but I'm not sure.

The digi stamp was a freebie but I can't remember where from at the moment - I've coloured it with promarkers. Papers are some that have been in a drawer for a very long time so I'm not sure what they are either! Cardstock is coredinations, the border was made with a Martha Stewart punch and I've added some ribbon and little lilac gems from my stash. The sentiment is computer generated in Scriptina font.

Hiya. This is lovely. I like a card like this. Lovely paper for the bckground which shows the flowers of beautifully. Lovely script you have used for the sentiment too.
Its always hard making something which is out of your comfort zone, but be proud, its fabulous.
Have a lovely evening.

beautiful card i wondered when you print out those digi stamps to colour with promarkers do you use a paticular type of card or paper ? for the best results ty jan

hi Lisa thank you for the super fast answer to my question..so good of you to take the time.I think my printer must be the same as when i have tried printing an image and using promarkers or prismas its has tended to bleed so i will try your hairspray and wait time trick tfs jan

it is different for you, but sometimes it's good to do something different and I think the recipient will love it.
